Still seeking information on the DONOVAN'S of DE and their orrigion. What I do have is below. I am not sure of this information so some may be wrong. It starts from where the first DONOVAN shows in my line and goes back.
Rose Lee DONOVAN (my grandmother) b.? d. 7 December 1953 South Plainfield, Middlesex Co. NJ m. Vernon John Sr. CARLISLE of Highbridge, Hunterdon Co. NJ Children: Vernon John Jr and Robert
Rose Lee was the dtr. of: Randolph Marshall DONOVAN b.13 Sep. 1884 Sussex Co., DE d. NJ? m. Martha "Mattie" Eliza WEBB of Ellendale, Sussex Co., DE Children; Dorothy, Ruthie, Randolph, Laurance or "Larry" and Rose Lee
Randolph Marshall DONOVAN was the son of: William Andrew DONOVAN b. 7 June 1853 Sussex Co., DE d. ? m. 14 Jan 1873 in Sussex Co., DE toMary Anna MACKLIN of Sussex Co., DE As of now do not know of other children.They were both burried in a CLENDANIEL family plot on Bever Dam Rd., Ellendale, DE on a farm that belonged to the CLENDANIEL's.
William Andrew DONOVAN was the son of: John T or P DONOVAN b. 1811? Sussex Co., DE d.? m. 12 Jan. 1832 in Sussex Co., DE to Mary HAEVELOE of Broadkill Hundred? Sussex Co., DE Children: Elizabeth, Maria, Peter, Mary, Sarah, Zachariah and William.
John T. or P. DONOVAN was the son of Peter DONOVAN b.1786 MD/DE? d.1863 m.1804? Mary Gibson from Sussex Co., DE Children: Peter b. abt 1817 d. abt. 1889 A poss. Robert and John T. or P.
Peter DONOVAN was the son of John DONOVAN b.? MD/DE? d.1830? m.?? Cildren that I know of; Peter and Mary b. 1794 m. DICKERSON
John DONOVAN was the son of William DONOVAN b. abt. 1725 MD?d.? m.?
William DONOVAN was the son of Timothy JR? DONOVAN b. abt 1676 MD?d.? m.? Mary ? from MD? Children; William, Thomas b 29 June 1706 and Daniel b. abt. 1718? in MD? (based on the 1776 census of Harford Co. MD which has him as 58 years old)
I do know that well before 1776 Harford Co. was part of Baltimore Co. so family may show up there as well as St. Georges Parish and St. Johns Parish. Does any body know if Williams father WAS Timothy DONOVAN for sure. If so, was Timothy's father Timothy SR or could it have been Foster DONOVAN father of John DONOVAN who d.in 1705 in Lewes, Sussex Co., DE.
I am also looking for information on all children of these lines as well as the names of missing spouses and their family. Any info would be great. Also if any one out there can correct me on any of this please do.
